Videos of Hawaiian Ethno-Botany

Given all the work that went into making kapa—only to have it dissolve into a paste in a passing shower—one can appreciate why it made eminent good sense just to go without. Makes you wonder about the absurdity of department stores hereabouts staging their fall and winter fashion extravaganzas, wot?

O ke aloha ka mea i oi aku ka maikai mamua o ka umeke poi a me ka ipukai ia. – Love is far better than the poi dish or the fish bowl.
